Quality Associate Sr (Current Employee) – Bettendorf, IA – March 22, 2017
As with any job there have been ups and downs. However, Olympic Steel over all cares about their employees. I have worked for this company for 13 years and love it. I am proud to say my co-workers are my "work family" and we support each other in times of need.

The job isn't too stressful. The pay isn't very good. Supervisors don't really know too much about the job. On a typical day, you operate overhead cranes and log the information into the computer system
3rd Shift Lead (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MN – March 7, 2017
6 Machines which myself and two or three other people had to keep running. Management was always there for you and training came from me or anyone that knew what they were doing. Having to work mandatory overtime all the time was probably the only issue i had there. Left the company with good standing.
4 tens was always nice, i was in charge of the shift and the bosses liked me.
Mandatory overtime got hard with a family to take care of.
Terrible moral . Management is disrespective . I wouldn't send my worst enemy to work here
Welder (Former Employee) – Chambersburg, PA – February 16, 2017
I cannot stress enough . Do not work for these people. The Management from top to bottom is corrupt. They protect their own. High turn over rate.. Low moral and deplorable working conditions They only care about the bottom dollar. Quality is sacrificed for production. They have no respect for the employee. I was cursed at and berated daily for over a year. The insurance is average. The pay rate is very low for non management positions. OT is mandatory .

Some management should not be there and there is a high turn over jn Inside Sales. Ask yourself why. The minute someone leaves your work load doubles. The most enjoyable part of my job was my co-workers.
one shift verse's the other, nobody got along well
Crane Operator/Rigger (Former Employee) – Roseville, MI – January 23, 2017
We come in, start working, loading trucks ,putting up orders. There was only two people per shift, I liked third shift, not many trucks to interfear getting the work done. Trucks would come in early in the morning to get unloaded, no waiting. I was the lead on the shift. The other people were usually from the workhouse and didn't want to do anything, so I got used to doing it myself.
Laser Operator (Current Employee) – Mount Sterling, KY – December 26, 2016
Olympic steel is a very laid back place to work. You are treated with respect. The pay isn't great but the work environment makes up for that. Safety is there number one priority they want to make sure everyone gets to come home to there family
This would be a great company to work for.But keep in mind the Plymouth Mn coil works with the county jail and has some still serving time working there.They do not tell you that.They get only five an hr and are still serving time.Not the best of attitudes manager even thinks so.They seem to be able to get you in trouble by telling lies.Even though you were hired direct your word seems to mean little.GREAT PAY AND BENEFITS.If you can be one of the lucky ones to make the 90 days.
They let me go over a few things that were explotited into 2-3 times the things I did.They also put your timecard up on the wall in what they call the wall of fame.HR says this is not a problem.Me I have never seen that in 43 years of working.
